The feminists must be distracted; otherwise they would be outraged by the abuse of Uzbek women, who are being sterilised against their will. These poor women are not even aware of that government's monthly quotas which are assigned to each Ob-Gyn, and carried out during childbirth.
And look at the health risks that women are unnecessarily subject to for this govt. program:
The forced sterilizations may even be on the rise. Antelava’s medical sources reported a dramatic increase in Caesarean section births in the last two years, which provide surgeons with an easy opportunity to sterilize women.
“Rules on Caesareans used to be very strict, but now I believe 80% of women give birth through C-sections. This makes it very easy to perform a sterilisation and tie the fallopian tubes,” a chief surgeon at a hospital near Tashkent said.
“The mark of a totalitarian government is the use of secretive programs, violence and force to manipulate the population. This effort to forcibly sterilize women without their knowledge is an egregious affront to human rights and a crime against humanity,” said Father Peter West, vice president for missions at Human Life International, in response to the story. “Civil and political leaders in Uzbekistan and other nations, including President Obama, need to strongly and very publicly condemn these attacks on the women of Uzbekistan and pressure government officials to bring an end to this human rights crisis.”
Obama and the feminists always seem to be distracted by their own red herrings. 80% of Uzbek babies are delivered by Caesarian so that the government can interfere with their fertility? To women who are probably strong, healthy, and otherwise need no such interventions? In settings where health care may be substandard and risky?
Leave it to the Church to point out real injustices against women--and to work for the good.
